Good morning dear readers,
Bad news after bad news has hit us in the last few months. That makes you tired. Readers wrote to me yesterday that they find daily media consumption “psychological” and “frustrating”. me too This makes it all the more important to focus on encouraging development. There are reasons. America’s sharpest-tongued historian, Timothy Snyder, summed it up yesterday: “China is over the top, the Russians need to be taken out, and Trump is done for. There’s hope, folks.”
Is that right? What do the results of the American congressional elections really mean, what will they mean for us in Germany, and is Donald now plotting new dirty tricks? Our USA correspondent Bastian Brauns, my colleague Lisa Fritsch and I talk about this on today’s podcast. Please listen.
